Cherry Cupcake


Again, a second post today, its just a really quick post with a card made with this week's Freshly Made Sketch

I started this card on Wednesday, but it didn't get finished until today. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do but was just struggling with the perfect sentiment. In the end I couldn't find the sentiment I wanted and didn't have time to make up my own so I changed my idea slightly to get this finished in time.

Stamp Set: Create a Cupcake
Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green
Punch: 1 3/4" Circle, Cupcake Builder
Embellishments: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding

I thought it'd be cute to do a patterned background with lots of little cherries. I originally wanted to make a big cherry for the topper in place of the cupcake but that didn't work out in the end. It was quite time consuming but I like it better than the cherry stamp. 

I layered up some ribbon and baker's twine and then a cupcake on top of that. Cute huh? Okay, hope you enjoyed this, hopefully I'll be more organised on challenges this next week! 

Happy Stampin',
